Morganoffat,
I'm not a mechanic but I have 15 years in the parts business. From what you say I will point you into the direction I beleive your problem is. I would check your throttle control. follow the air intake to the engine intake manifold. in that area you will find what is called a "throttle position sensor". it is activated be the postion of the "gas pedal" it work alittle like a reostat switch. not much you can do with it other than checking ohm redings at differnt positions or replaceing it. Good Luck

Why does car jerks constantly when i accelerate ?


Your car probably has the same problem as the 1995 corolla that I had before.
I don't know if jerking is same as vibrating but I brought my car to the shop and the mechanic said that it was caused by the wiggling of the harmonic balancer. He changed it but the problem wasn't solve. It wasn't diagnosed correctly so I asked for a second opinion and a friend of mine who is a mechanic found out what was wrong with the car. The bearings of the left front drive axle were completely worned that's why it don't spin evenly that causes the jerking or vibration when you accelerate
He replaced it and the problem was gone.

Why does my car jerk when i change the transmission from park to drive


the idle RPM is too high
or its just too cold,
how cold is it outdoors?
idle speeds cold can be about 1500 RPM/ cold.
and will ****.
it jerks because you are taking 0 torque from engine
and the sending that to a stalled rear axle.
this cause a ****, that is why the park lock out requires Brakes on
so yo dont run over things.

Shakes ONLY under acceleration? Goes away when you back off of the throttle? Are you sure?
Please inspect the front and both side engine mounts.The half shafts will cause that sort of a shake(whole car) when they go bad(inboard CV joints).
Aggravated OR caused my a motor mount that has shifted to one side,binding the half shaft.
Common in Chrysler mini vans!!!!!!That is why the front motor mount is adjustable.
Check the engine mount on the short half side first.

My toyota camry 1993 have a power problem, when i'm giving gas the car jerks and even sometimes would suddenly out.


Have you replaced your fuel filter lately? that is usually the main cause for that common issue. A clogged or messy filter leads to starving the engine so when you accelerate there is a deficiency in the firing of the spark plugs. That then causes the jerking dying.

Jerking on normal acceleration.


You might try a TPS switch. It should set a code but yours did't. The throttle position sensor sets the spark advance and fuel flow to match. The other possibility is the EGR system which also should set a code.
If you have not changed the fuel filter,try that because if you accellerate hard the fuel slooshes to the back of the tank.
In normal driving the contaminents lay on the bottom of the tank.
